Clean, tight, unmarked; slight of wear to edges of dust jacket; otherwise appears unread; This is the story of an extraordinary bird, one which hasn't been seen since 1987 and is presumed extinct, a bird which wintered in Patagonia at the Antarctic tip of South America and which flew the whole length of the two continents to breed inside the Arctic Circle above Hudson Bay. Many years ago flocks of Eskimo curlews were so thick they darkened the skies, but they were such swift, powerful fliers that they never developed a sense of fear - even of man. And that was their undoing. Illustrated with imaginative scratch board drawings by T.M. Shortt. This book possesses a vitality and casts a charm which reaches far beyond a readership of bird-lovers and conservationists.
